Interest in engineering microbial communities for application in biotechnology and biomedical science has rapidly grown over the last decade. The design and control of microbial communities still remains a grand challenge, particularly due to the complexity of interspecies interactions that require mathematical modeling and computational analysis as essential tools.
This Special Issue calls for contributions across a broad range of areas that address recent computational and modeling developments for predicting species interactions and community dynamics and functions. Modeling frameworks of interest include metabolic network analysis, flux balance analysis, trait-based modeling, Lotka-Volterra modeling, evolutionary game theory, the cybernetic approach, functional gene-based modeling, thermodynamically-based modeling, individual-based modeling, integrative multiscale modeling, and other relevant approaches. We also welcome papers on data-driven inference of species interaction networks or gene co-expression networks in microbial communities.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
